And one day the Forum will have a faux Tell.

And HE won't shut up either.

That could be fun to do; to whom do we send our sample writing?

Are you recommending we start taking applications for "faux formuites" to step in when one of us can no longer execute our duties of...whatever it is we do here...due to physical/mental deterioration and/or spousal interference?

Why not? Even our Boys did the same. We've been through several Faux Jerrys. I'm in.

You said fauxTell and I was going to make and AirBnB comment that wasn't very funny. That got me thinking about a list of things, like AirBnB, that did not exist when we all joined the forum. I'll start:

1. John Mayer's pubes.

Don't shy away from bad puns. That was excellent and made my laugh. Well played.

As for the pubes; repugnant, but spot on.

3. Quality Dead shows (to each his own)

I am late to the party, 2012 maybe I don't know.
When did it start?
I assume after 95 so that would be...

Any Dead show

right?

"When did it start?"

One question, many answers; all of them right (I'm looking at you WT...and not Faux Tell). Some say it started when Pig left, some say it was when they came back from their mid-70's hiatus, some point to the departure of Keith and Donna while I'd have to say the largest group points to the hiring of Brent "Michael McDonald aint got nothing on me" Mydland. This is one of those subjective things that you decide on your own (unless you want to join the small group of lemmings hurling themselves off the "cliff" in pursuit of WT). For me, I see the number of quality shows starting to really fall off in the early 80's, but that's not to say they weren't able to produce the outstanding gem when they were into it (or Jerry decided to shower and put down the extra Twinkie). The number of these gems certainly declined quickly as Jerry started chasing the dragon (and the Hostess delivery truck) in earnest. To me there's no wrong answer to this question.

I misunderstood. I thought it was when did the forum start and I meant it started after 95 so no Dead shows.
As for when did the quality shows stop that is too big for my plate to answer

Nope. 'twas I who misunderstood. Not the first time, nor the last. You have it right.

I'm still trying to ID the very first post here. Others more skilled in sorting the threads may have better luck. Late 90's I'd guess.

EDIT:
Maybe a bit later then that.
Regarding the music collection: "Created in 2004 this collection consists of both audience and soundboard recordings. It is not uncommon to find multiple versions of the same show. For more information please see the FAQ. The Grateful Dead collection is not currently open to public uploads." I'm assuming our Forum started about the same time.

Also, found this thread which is somewhat appropriate:

I was going to do my "best" SDH imitation and suggest that you don't pull punches because you are busy pulling something...no, sorry, I just can't do it. So I waited. And you stepped in.

You’re a very gentle, kynd, and patient man. I’m glad you waited for me to step in it. You know that’s my favorite

And let’s think about how the word ‘best’ and ‘SDH’ should never be right next to each other

Well I see you were funny then too !

I came after this split. I just thought they wanted to cull the deadheads from the herd so they built a new pen to hold them in so they wouldn't bother and spill into the rest anymore. Good thing they did because it blew up in 05 when they yanked the boards. Maybe that is why they built the "pen."

The posts seem not to change much over time but that is expected too. All good.
